gone where? like i would just leave before aberavon part 2 , WEBM, and falmouth 6. no way



you should smoke while your fire breathing nana

i'm trying to quit so we can not smoke together.



can't wait for the 12th

this time we will have more people and more time to plan = more fun. and we know how much fun the last aberavon meet was so this will be insane



bounce bounce bounce



gizmo - can you isolate infinite hyperloops?

non - what size were the flags you had at cardiff?

Posted:circus eruption is always advertised in the back of the big issue, they want volunteers to teach and stuff on mondays... I think i saw something about them on tv or in a magazine or something and it did look quite good...

sage, i can't remember what size the flasg were i think it the small ones though. do what i did and get a tape measure and try and work out whether they'd drag on the floor or not...

north wales meet, possibly depends really when and how... have sort of run out of free time this summer... but that's just me.

Aberavon, yes, but please order some nicer weather. Are you getting train from Cardiff pitman? would like to get the same one as i haven't the faintest idea where i'm going smile

Posted:Circus eruption is aimed at teaching able bodied and disabled children circus skills. It is always looking for volunteers as far as I know. They have been going for some years and are a very friendly bunch that will probably be more than willing to give you some advice and a few warnings of pit falls for you when starting up your own circus skills workshops.

A North Wales meet is not out of the question. Anglesy is a beautiful area, if a little hard to get to on public transport. I have family up near Bangor so come up that way sometimes. I'll try and remeber to PM you next time I'm going up glowingsunsets and maybe we could meet up for a spin.
